The first annual Paradise Disc Golf Tournament was held this last weekend on Mt CB in conjunction with the Bluegrass Festival. Sponsored by CBMR, Flashflight
and Innova Disc Golf
. Three days of disc golf with over 50 participants through out the weekend. Junior, Women, Men in Amateur and Advanced divisions played 18 holes/per day competing for prizes. A big thank you to all the local merchants that donated gift certificates and prizes to the 1st, 2nd, 3rd place winners as well as closest to the pin and long drive takers.

The tournament was organized and directed by Jeff Scott, Dan Fitzgerald and Pete Sowar. CBMR's trail crew spent a few weeks prior to the event really buffing the course and improving the tee boxes. The course is making strides to the be one of the best in the state. Special thanks to CBMR's Allison Yeary, Andrew Cesati and Mark Ewing's trail crew for the hard work to make it happen.
